ARLINGTON, Virginia — U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) welcomes Catherine Miller to its Arlington, VA, headquarters office staff as Programs and Planning Coordinator effective January 2, 2018. In this role, Miller will support programs by coordinating trade teams and short course programs with USW’s overseas offices and state wheat commissions. She will also support planning with its annual Unified Export Strategy (UES) review process. She will report to Vice President of Programs and Planning Jennifer Sydney.
“Catherine’s enthusiasm for the agricultural industry will be an asset to our work at USW,” said Sydney.
Miller joins USW after graduating cum laude from Auburn University May 2017, earning a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business and economics. A native of Virginia, she gained valuable experience as a Pathways intern for the USDA at the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), where she developed reports for USDA supported activities in Food Safety and Climate Change and worked with the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program.
